Unforunately not. As Antonio mentions above, this does appear to be an unofficial medal.

The medal is currently listed on eBay.de as article number: 133723850986 (eBay.ie & eBay.co.uk also list the item). Perhaps the seller has more information.

After a lot of pressure from politicians the german department of defense now thinks about a medal too. So far their idea to reward soldiers helping during the pandemic were certificates and free concerts (no comment about this).

Decree-Law 19/2021 stipulates the creation of a new medal, named the “Prince Salman bin Hamad Medal for Medical Merit”, which will be added to the medals listed in Article (1) of Decree-Law 19/1976.

 

The new Medal will come after the “Bahrain Medal” in the list, and the remaining items shall be re-arranged accordingly.

 

It also stipulates the addition of a new article (4 bis) to Decree-Law 19/1976. It reads:

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
